(2 of 2 photos) 1910 silk and linen evening dress by Weeks, French. Transitioning from the popular S-curve silhouette, this fashionable and eye-catching dress is more streamlined, with a slightly raised waist, introducing a more modern look. What is of most interest is the surprising combination of materials, using both polka dots and paisley patterns.

Dinner gown, Redfern, London, ca. 1909. Black silk velvet trimmed with chemical lace in the Van Dyck manner. Long self-fabric flounces run the length of the skirt. Slight train. Victoria & Albert Museum: “The higher neckline and longer ruched sleeves distinguish this from sleeveless low-cut ball gowns. … The intentionally historical appearance of the gown suggests it may have been made for fancy dress.”
